In OL BCM 2007 it seems user defined fields were displayed in the IMAP views (based on a comment in this forum) , but they don't seem to be there any longer. I have added user defined fields to the BCM 2010 Project form and they work fine, but I can't find their content anywhere in MSSMLBIZ. Does anyone know in which MSSMLBIZ table/view they are now stored?




(I'm using multiple Excel external data methods to access MSSMLBIZ.)

I cam answer my own question. In BCM 2010 the fields are in a table called 'User Fields'. And they are still in binary format. See notes elsewhere here in the forum on how to read the binary format (search for "user defined field".)

Hi phillfri, and other BCM/SQL geniuses, I just have the same problem. I want to make mail-merge letter in word or a report in excel and therefore I made a SQL connection. The standard fields work fine, but where and how can I get the user defined fields. I just learned that I get the right field names in the db “MSSmallBusiness userfield definition” but where is the content stored “MSSmallBusiness Entityuserfields”? So, how do I do this exercise to get the content in the right data type resp. format, Macro? ?


Can’t find any thread in the forum or internet, any help are appreciated!


Cheers,


Chris
